I wanted to get one of these the last time they were $39.99 but waited too long and missed out. So, now that they're back at that price, I just ordered one (red). As for the weak usb ports on some units, I noticed that, at least on amazon, the few defective units were all black. Perhaps the problem was fixed once they started making them in red, or white? Just a thought! And to me, if Westinghouse honors the 1 year warranty (should mine have a defect) I will be satisfied.
